Cupcake Week: Cupcakes for Delia

This week is going to be all about cupcakes. We will be having a special guest post later in the week from our cousin, “the Cupcake Queen” and we’ll finish the week with a review of one of Sarah’s favorite Cupcake cookbooks.

Yay for cupcakes! We love cupcakes!

Sarah and I have been talking about doing a week dedicated to our favorite little cakes since the blog began. I had checked out some cupcake cookbooks in preparation for the week and told my daughter Delia that she could go through the books and choose a recipe for us to try. She flipped through the books for a minute and then proceeded to come up with her own idea – strawberry cupcakes with marshmallow frosting. And since I pretty much make whatever my kids ask for, and I had strawberries in the fridge, we began immediately! Delia was thrilled with the end product, and I hope you like it too 🙂

Delia’s Strawberry Cupcakes:

  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup cream
  • 1 cup strawberries, roughly chopped
  1. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in one bowl.
  2. Mix the butter, sugar, and vanilla on medium speed until light and creamy.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time until just blended.
  4. With mixer on low speed add flour mixture alternating with cream, beginning and ending with flour mixture.
  5. Stir in strawberries.
  6. Scoop batter into muffin pan , filling to about 3/4 full.
  7. Bake @ 350° for 20-25 minutes.

Marshmallow Frosting:

  • 2 large egg whites
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  1. Put the egg whites and the sugar in a heat-proof bowl placed over a pan of simmering water and whisk away! I whisked on the heat for about 5 minutes and then used a mixer for another couple of minutes off the heat.
